B4SE 2023

In association with West Mercia Scouts, Girlguiding West Mercia, Staffordshire Scouts and Girlguiding Staffordshire.

This is the adults skills weekend which runs alongside wilderness. in 2023 this will have a number of over 18s only sessions.

Camping and indoor accommodation is based around Chantrey House away from all other campers, in an adults only area. Their will be a campfire on Naboths Vinyard for you to use in the evenings to meet other leaders and chat around the fire.

You will share workshops and activities with Wilderness 2023, however depending on B4SE camp numbers we will endevour to make some of these B4SE camp participants only.

Feedback from those who came to the 2022 event was that this is a fantastic social event for leaders, with great workshops, entertainment and skills training.
